.... although some would argue not 100% genuine wild either

Took a small group out to Gigrin on Saturday - crikey it's grown since i was there last. Anyone thinking of just nipping there, do call to book a hut - we called when half-way there and were lucky to get a space at all!

Have uploaded a few variants - you willl see that i 'banked' a few easy ones - ie open sky before going for the ones i was more interested in, ie more interesting backgrounds and head-on shots.

Initially i would have been using a relatively fast shutter to freeze the whiole subject but then moved to slower shutters in order to attempt to capture a little movement.

As this was not an 'official' workshop i got to keep my 300mm and as such made the most of the opportunity.

As always your opinions, questions etc are more welcome

Spectacular shots Phil! This is somewhere I mean to visit every time we go to parents' house which is only 10 miles away - never got there yet! The last time we were in Wales a Red Kite divebombed our car as we were driving along!!!


Great series, Phil. V7 is an absolute stunner.
